The Ringmasters Wife – Kristy Cambron
I have been on a quest . . . a quest for a good book. You know, one of those that you can’t put down, one that won’t make you cringe over choice words or all of the touchy-feely stuff. I wanted something lovely, a great story, not too preachy, with a sense of wonder. I’ve read, put down, returned, regretted downloading, and sighed . . . a lot! I was beginning to think I was just too picky–no romance, not in the mood for sci-fi or fantasy, mystery maybe . . . Oh, where oh where had all of the lovely stories gone?
Then, I found it. As an author, I follow a lot of authors on social media, so it’s no surprise that I found Kristy Cambron’s The Ringmaster’s Wife in a Facebook group. I’ve always loved the circus (and have my own bit of history with The Greatest Show on Earth), and knowing that Cambron and I share a mutual faith, I purchased the book for a weekend trip.
I was instantly captivated and drawn into the luxury and inner workings of the circus. What a joy to read a piece of writing that is “clean”, well-researched, and a pure delight. It was without hesitation that I could even pass The Ringmaster’s Wife on to one of my teen writers with full confidence that it would not only be safe and enjoyable but also . . . A Lovely Place to Dwell.
